Meet the candidates: Republicans retain District 9 Senate seat while three vie for two House seats
Republicans are guaranteed to retain control of the District 9 Senate seat after the Democratic Party failed to field a candidate in the race. Political newcomer Brent Hoffman won the seat by winning his primary race.
In the House, two Republicans and a Democrat are vying for the district’s two seats.
The district stretches from northwest Sioux Falls and includes Hartford.
The Dakota Scout sent a series of questions to all legislative candidates in the Sioux Falls and surrounding area who are running contested for state House and Senate in the Nov. 8 election. Candidates were asked to limit their responses to each question to 100 words or less.
Responding candidates are listed in the order they appear on the ballot.
